0 Comments 07 June 2017

The collective and record label Play Like A Girl celebrated one year last month at The Echoplex with a killer lineup.

In just a year’s time, the record label, artist collective, and event producers known as Play Like A Girl have left a firm footprint on LA music culture. DRAEMINGS frontwoman Kimi Recor and a her team of Ammo Bankoff, Katrina Bleckley, Laura Peters, Francisca Valenzuela, Lisa Fernandez, and Emma Cole united as a reaction the blanket of biases facing women and non-binary musicians in the industry. It was time for safer spaces. The result of their numerous gatherings and inclusive all-ages events has been the cultivation of a supportive network of female artists, one in which representation is considered imperative. Play Like A Girl has hosted to a rosters of burgeoning and now-current superstars, from within LA, to cross-country, and beyond, and these collective achievements were given proper due on Saturday, May 27th at The Echoplex, as Play Like’s Girl One-Year Anniversary party took over the venue from 3pm thru the rest of the evening. Yay! LA was there for the celebration and are now bringing you shots from the event in three parts:
